After the Momo viral campaign, loom bands etc, FaceApp is currently flavour of the month. If you’ve not seen it, you download the App, pop a photo in from your camera and pick Young or Young 2 or Old and you transform. It’s not an act of generosity by the developers though as the Pro version (where you can customise faces) costs money.
If you’ve not looked at it, it’s worth 10 minutes of your time we reckon.
You didn’t click the title though on a Scunthorpe law site to read about social media fripperies – or perhaps you did?
Mirror wills (or bloodline wills) are identical documents for a couple which make the same stipulations and it’s something we can help you with at Tyto Law.
Why, then, should you make a mirror will?
Your partner inherits everything
They are almost identical documents for couples, who consent to leaving their whole estate to the last surviving partner if one of them passes away. This protects your partner from future financial uncertainty.
You can provide for your children
A mirror will add nstructions for both parties’ estates to be left to any surviving children should the couple die at the same time. If you have any children under the age of 18, you can appoint a guardian for them should both parents pass away.
You can name additional executors
Usually the partners are the sole beneficiary in each other’s mirror will and are also each other’s executor (ie a person named by the maker of a will to carry out the directions of the will). In the case of mirror wills, additional executors should be named, so that both partners’ wishes can be carried out at the same time if they die.
Thinking about your future, whilst playing with FaceApp, is an important aspect of life. You need to be prepared for all eventualities in terms of mirror wills or lasting powers of attorney. Dementia or ill health may strike and you need legal assurances.
